Selling Your Vintage - FAQs

So, you've got some amazing items that you'd like to get rid of - great!  We'll be more than happy to take them off of your hands.  Just a few notes before you head on over to our seller's form.


+ What types of items do you buy?
We buy men's and women's clothes from the turn of the century to early 80s. We are mostly interested in work wear, denim,t-shirts, and early dresses. Rare and unique items to the front of the line!
+ What price should I expect for my item?
Depending on the amount of restoration necessary, we are willing to pay about 30% - 50% of what we can sell the item for. In other words, if your item is in good condition we would sell it for $100 and pay you around $50. Please be mindful, just because you saw something listed on Ebay for $1000, that doesn't mean that is what it's worth. If you're interested in consignment, we, very selectively, offer consignment through our website and showroom. Please contact for details but, again, we are very selective.
+ Wait, why would I sell to you when I could just list on Ebay, Etsy, etc.??
We've spent years figuring out how to market and list our items in a way that makes money on these platforms. That includes investing time and money into the technology and research it takes to be successful. Basically, it's not easy to make money quickly, but selling to us might be.
+ What information should I include?
Anything you think is important! Size, story, flaws, and smells.
+ Can I ship my item to you?
Certainly! Just include a note that indicates you would like to do so in the form.
+ My item isn't in very good condition, does that matter?
Depending on what you have that might not matter! Cool graphic t-shirts with holes are usually ok! Denim with stains and rips are still wearable and cool. We're also capable of quite a few repairs depending on the severity of damage.
+ Do I have to send you pictures?
Yes please! We need to see the items before making any decisions, to assess damage and to verify that the items are genuine. We don't need professional shots, but cell phone pics in daylight are best. Please try to include a full shot of the whole item, a few close ups of major damage and the item tag if there is one.
